FAQ - How Do I Make A Lot Of Money On The Internet?

Money, money, money
Money, money, money | Source

Question: I need to make a lot of money real fast and I saw in a lot of advertisements that the Internet is a good place to do that.

Answer: That's right, this is the right place to make a lot of money.

Question: So, how do I start?

Answer: Just go to Google.com, type in "get rich quick" and visit the sites that come up and you are on your way.

Question: Okay, I found an interesting site that says I can be earning thousands a month within days of signing up with about 1 hour of work per week.

Answer: Hmm....only thousands a month and you still need to work an hour a week? That's a little conservative but quite all right for a start. Go ahead and sign up.

Question: Are you sure? The money is great but I'm not sure if I'm qualified to do the work required.

Answer: Don't worry. The website is probably fully automated so it will do the selling for you. You do not need any experience or qualifications at all.

Question: I don't understand. If the website is fully automated and it does the selling all by itself, why am I needed?

Answer: Well, you are needed to do some administrative chores, and to log in to your account and check how much you have earned.

Question: The administrative chores should be quite simple since I do not need any experience or qualifications to do them. Won't it be better for the webmaster to contract out the work to freelance workers or automate the tasks? He can earn much more that way.

Answer: The webmasters of such sites have already earned many millions of dollars. Out of the goodness of their hearts, they want to give something back.

Question: If that's the case, why do I need to pay $49.95 per month? Shouldn't he offer it for free?

Answer: Well, the money is needed to run the website.

Question: Isn't that a little expensive for a website? Normal hosting fees are way lower than that.

Answer: That's to cater for the traffic your website is going to get.

Question: How is my website going to get traffic?

Answer: Just tell your friends, and ask them to tell their friends.

Question: I thought you said I didn't need to do any selling.

Answer: You don't need to do any selling. Just get your friends to come to your website and it will do the selling for you.

Question: But I don't have a lot of friends.

Answer: You don't need a lot of friends. Just tell 3 of your friends, and make sure they tell 3 of their friends, and make sure your friends' friends tell another 3 of their friends. After 10 levels, you will have 88572 people in your downline.

Question: Wow! Okay, I just signed up.

Answer: Good for you!

Question: I got my friends to visit but they want to know what I'm selling. I have browsed my whole site but I still do not know what I'm selling.

Answer: This is the Internet. You do not need a product to make money.

Question: My friends really like my website but they are not going to part with their money without knowing the product they are purchasing.

Answer: Your friends are obviously not qualified to sign up.

Question: But you said no experience or qualifications is needed to sign up.

Answer: Yes, the website says that you must have no experience and no qualifications. Your friends are obviously experienced and qualified.

Good Hub! I enjoyed reading it! I like the satire of it! It is so true that these offers that claim you need no experience and will make thousands per month are all scams. I've learned to stay away from anything that requires money up front. As they say, "Never pay for a job." Good hub!

Thanks! Like you, I'm really sick and tired of hyped claims about how much you can make on the web.

Thanks! Thought that if I were to approach it from the other end, it might actually be easier to show how ridiculous some of the claims really are.

Good funny article but seriously- They are actually making money out of people signing up for the "wonderful claims" I usually search online with keywords like scam.... and usually there is a article about them. Also in USA there is BBB which lists the business practices which expose these scams. Good hub certainly a thumbs up from me.

There are clubs in which the sole purpose is to sign up other people. They really have no product, but of course it does not say so on the site. I really admire the way they can say so many things about their "product" and at the end of the day, you still have no idea of what their product is. These guys will make great politicians. ;)

But seriously people trust somebody with such outlandish claims. I wish those sites are brought down by the ISP's as unethical. Or maybe the government can take action as I heard it happens in China

Well, people buy with their heart and not with their head. These people know how to push your buttons. They get to the heart of what you really want and give it to you. These people are great salesman - they don't seem to realize that if they just take the trouble, find or create a great product and then sell it, they can make so much more in the long run.

I think it's difficult for the ISPs or government to take action as most sites tend to be borderline. And you probably can't tell just by reading their site. And such sites come and go everyday. And there's also a problem if the site is in another country. Unless the authorities maintain a team to police these sites, it just have to be a case of "Buyer Beware!"

Good one! Pity so few people will read this until after they've been scammed!

When we are little, and our mothers tell us that a flame is hot, do we believe her? No. We just have to stick our finger in the flame, get burnt and then we know that the flame is hot.

Interestingly, when we grow up, and encounter a "Wet Paint" sign, we just have to stick out our finger and confirm that the paint is wet.

Maybe it is in our constitution that some things we just have learn for ourselves, no amount of telling will help. :(

Great Hub!

At first I thought you had lost it ;) Hopefully many will read it before they run into the get rich quick scams....

Nice Job,

Thanks, Jim!

Unfortunately, I think a lot of people have to be taken in first before they will listen.  Maybe it's just human nature.

But I had fun writing this hub.  :)

Hey Sandman, does your air do anything else other than being rare?

I got another offer of rare air, just $12.25 per bottle. Very rare. Just one whiff will cure you of all diseases and make you an instant hit with the ladies. One bottle is good for 10 whiffs. :)
